Fun!

I ate at a Yakiniku in Hawaii and was determined to find one in San Francisco. I was surprised that San Francisco doesn't have many (only two that I've spotted so far), but Juban was in Japantown and it wasn't bad. Not as great as the one in Hawaii, but it was nice.

Staff was helpful in picking out our dinner. Kids had a blast cooking they're own meat on table grill. Food looked small but in the end it was enough to say u got stuffed. Pork was tasty as well as signature beef was soft and tasty. Worth the money and experience

Juban on Broadway in Burlingame Ca just near the San Francisco airport is a great place. It's a cook yourself Japanese style restaurant. The meats are succulent. Absolutely top grade beef. Its fun sitting there talking and cooking your own meat exactly the way you want it. Not a very busy place and does not open until 530pm for dinner... More

We didn't do the barbecue-at-your-table thing, but we stopped in for lunch and all four of us had bento boxes with miso soup for about $12 each. We were very pleased with the food, the price and the service. They gladly provide utensils for the chopstick-challenged, too. Pleased to recommend.
